Girona Airport is located approx. 12km from the capital and it is easy enough to get into the city using the main N-II, AP7 and C25 roads that serve the airport. Girona Airport is on the Costa Brava in the north-eastern corner of Spain near to the French border which is approximately 40 minutes drive away.
Girona Airport is the 10th busiest airport in all of Spain and in 2007 handled 4,848,604 passengers and has experienced incredible growth since it was built in 1965 with the majority of growth seen since 2003. Back in 2002 Girona Airport was still only dealing with 557,187 passengers. From 2006 to 2007 Girona Airport saw an amazing 34.2% growth in passenger numbers which was the biggest growth out of all of the 20 busiest airports in Spain.
Much of the vast growth has been down to the arrival of many low cost airlines. In the early 2000s, Ryanair chose Girona as one of its European hubs and these days Girona Airport is a viable and popular alternative to Barcelona Airport located 92km southwards. Girona Airport is also useful for those wishing to travel on to the ski resorts in the Pyrenees and navigating the roads is easily done.
As there is no main train station at Girona Airport Car Hire, booking Girona car hire and picking a car up at the airport is recommended. Whether you plan to head straight in to the city of Gerona, to other resorts along the Costa Brava, up to France or down to Barcelona, doing it in the comfort of your own car hire is the best form of travel in the area.
